Tried this in a blind taste test. Did not fare well. Hints of apples, lemon, and lots of oak. Some spiceness. Almost a cinnamon flavor. The fruit was under ripe. Dissapointing given the price. I have had bad luck with 07chardonays from california this year. Generally I like california chardonays. I'm conncerned with california wines this year. Rising prices, diminished quality. Look for better values in chile and argentina. Maybe next year will be better.

Simi winemaker Steve Reeder has produced an utterly delicious wine with this barrel-fermented beauty, the best nonreserve Chard from the winery in nearly 10 years. It shows flamboyant, complex flavors of tropical fruits, green apples, pears, butterscotch and smoky vanilla, with crisp, clean Russian River acidity. This is a good price, and the wine should be easy to find, with nearly 20,000 cases produced.

Like most Chards these days, this wine is boldly flavored, oaky and rich. But it goes beyond the tropical fruits, vanilla and buttercream to achieve real finesse and elegance. The crisp acidity helps make it balanced.

Textbook RRV Chard, with its bright, clean acids and savory flavors of ripe apples, pears and minerals, and dusty spices. All of this is well oaked, but the vanilla and char fit in just fine. The creamy texture adds allure.

Vibrant and nervy on the palate, displaying an intricate balance of warm and cool fruit flavors, distinctive mineral notes and layers of integrated oak. Its flavors reflect the diversity of grapevine selections planted in the Goldfields Vineyard.

Much better than the wineryrsquo;s regular rsquo;06 Sonoma County bottling, which was released a year ago. This wine is mellowing with bottle age, showing softly decadent flavors of grilled pineapples, buttered toast and smoky oak. Easy to find, with 17,500 cases produced.

A rich, smooth, elegant style, with creamy oak wrapped an intense, tasty core of earthy pear, spice, citrus and a touch of honey. Gains complexity and depth on a long, lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker's Notes:The Russian River Valley's cool climate plays a key role in Simi's Burgundian-style Chardonnay. The influence of the Pacific Ocean gives the Russian River Valley an extended modera

Tasting Notes:

Weighty and viscous on the palate, the wine explodes with aromas and flavors of ripe pear, juicy white peach and toasty oak spice. Fresh, yet richly textured, this Chardonnay captures the brilliance of Alexander Valley fruit.
